    Folder Views problem


    I have a problem

    When I change "Folder Views" in "This PC" in windows 8.1, the "Folder Views" will change in one of my drives. Whats is the problem?

    Hello Mhimhdi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you able to change the folder view of the drive back to how you like without affecting "This PC"?

    Please post some screenshots showing what you are seeing to see if it may help to ID what may be the cause.

    If I change folder view of this pc, then folder view of drives change like folder view of This PC.

    If I change folder view of my drives, then folder view of This PC change like folder view of drives.

    If you like, you could see if resetting all folder views back to default may help stop this.
